Building materials supplier Aggregate Industries UK has signed a five-year deal with Eddie Stobart as its concrete products division’s new logistics partner.
From October 2016, deliveries for Aggregate Industries’ concrete products division will transfer to Eddie Stobart’s manufacturing and industrial business unit. The haulier will carry Bradstone, Charcon and Masterblock products from 14 UK sites using a combination of specialist curtain-siders, flat trailers and mechanical off-load vehicles.
Aggregate Industries, part of the LafargeHolcim Group, said that it needed a flexible haulage partner with specialist resources and equipment. Eddie Stobart’s in-cab telematics systems enable Aggregate Industries to monitor arrivals and deliveries for customers and to improve scheduling.
Eddie Stobart CEO Alex Laffey said: “We are delighted to call Aggregate Industries our partner in the infrastructure sector. Our multimodal offering also presents a much broader opportunity for Eddie Stobart to support Aggregate Industries’ efforts in reducing the amount of product moved by road, and helping further our commitment to sector-leading sustainability.”
